Powerful techniques have been developed in recent years for the analysis of digital data, especially the manipulation of images. This book provides an in-depth introduction to a range of these innovative, avant-garde data-processing techniques. It develops the reader's understanding of each technique and then shows with practical examples how they can be applied to improve the skills of graduate students and researchers in astronomy, electrical engineering, physics, geophysics and medical...

The main objective of the course (through the lectures and through these notes) is to provide enough background on wavelets so that a researcher or skilled practitioner in computer graphics can understand the nature and properties of wavelets, and assess their suitability to solve specific problems in computer graphics. Our goal is that after the course and/or the study of these notes one should be able to access the basic mathematical literature on wavelets, understand and review critically...

Talk by Garrett Kenyon to the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at UC Berkeley. Garrett is a Principle Investigator at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.Abstract: The Locally Competitive Algorithm (LCA) is a neurally-plausible sparse solver based on lateral inhibition between leaky integrator neurons. LCA accounts for many linear and nonlinear response properties of V1 simple cells, including end-stopping and contrast-invariant orientation tuning. Here, we describe...

Talk by Johannes Ballé, who is visiting from Eero Simoncelli’s lab at NYU; given to the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at UC Berkeley.AbstractWe introduce a parametric nonlinear transformation for jointly Gaussianizing patches of natural images. The transformation is differentiable, can be efficiently inverted, and thus induces a density model. It generalizes and performs better than several previous image models such as ICA, radial Gaussianization, and ISA. Model samples are... Topics: density estimation, computer vision
In this paper we propose a persistent, robust and autonomousobject tracking paradigm called Persistent Aerial Tracking(PAT). A computer vision and control strategy for PAT isapplied to a diverse set of moving objects (e.g. humans, animals,cars, boats, etc.) integrating multiple UAVs with a stabilizedRGB camera. A novel strategy is employed to successfully trackobjects over a long period, by multiple UAVs ’handing overthe camera’ from one UAV to another. Due to the lack of anextensive aerial...

This paper provides a review of automating or semi-automating the seed qualitypurity test. Computer vision (CV) technology used in variety of industries is a sophisticatedtype of inspection technology; however, it is not widely used in agriculture.The applicationof CV technologies is very challenging in agriculture. As CV plays an important role in thisdomain, research in this area has been motivated. Several theories of automating seedquality purity test are briefly mentioned. The reviewed...

The main idea of the project is to develop a semiautonomous robot that can be controlled from a remote location and it has the intelligence to capture, analyze, and send visual data back to the controlling device. The robot works on the concept of image processing. It has a camera attached on top of it. The project is based on both hardware and software. The project uses Arduino UNO microcontroller, to interface hardware with a laptop. The soft wares used in the project are openCV, a library,...
